Today, due to the advances in the dental industry, heart problems caused by dental work are very rare. If you don't have any heart issues, dental treatments, including dental implants, can actually protect you from heart disease. Dental implants can help counteract all the symptoms of tooth loss, which can significantly reduce the impact it has on the heart. Plus, they can improve your ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence, improving your quality of life in many ways. If you have a pacemaker and are considering a dental implant procedure, it's important to talk to both your dentist and cardiologist to determine if it is a safe option for you.
Table 1 shows the distribution of age, sex, medical history, number of implants, implant position, type of prosthesis and antagonistic peri-implant parameters between groups. If you have missing teeth and are looking for a reliable and long-lasting tooth replacement option, dental implants may be the right choice for you. All in all, dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth and are safe to consider if you have heart or cardiovascular disease.
